Safety Vision Police Car Camera Captures Police Officer’s Bizarre Near-Miss with a Runaway Tire

Houston, TXSafety Vision, a global provider of mobile digital video solutions, made headlines on ABC, CNN, and FOX News when a Safety Vision PatrolRecorder™ 4C RHD police mobile digital video recorder (MDVR) captured a bizarre near-miss with a runaway tire. Safety Vision client Sgt. Matthew Davidson of the Harris County Precinct 8 Constable’s Office barely escaped severe injury when a 200-pound tire came unhinged from a semi truck and nicked past him at 60 mph on the shoulder of the Fred Hartman Bridge.

“First chance I got when I left the scene, I pulled my patrol car over and said a little prayer for the protection; said a little thank you prayer,” said Sgt. Davidson. “Call it divine intervention, it just wasn’t my time.” Sgt. Davidson came to the aid of stranded motorist Daniel Barnett changing a flat tire on the shoulder of the bridge that resides between the cities of Baytown and LaPorte, Texas. The only injuries Sgt. Davidson sustained were a scuffed up holster and weapon, a bruised leg, and rattled nerves!
